These PlayStation 3 Games Are Running Out of Time

There are some PlayStation 3 games that have been officially canned, like Eight Days. Then, there are upcoming games that always seem to be waiting for new info reveals. Here are some of the most noticeable titles (exclusive and not) that have been M.I.A. If they are going to make this generation, they better hurry it up! (PS3)

Eight Days....canned

Nope....put on hold
aceitman  +   975d ago
it would be nice to see them as ps4 launch titles.
Root  +   975d ago
Hopefully Eight Days looked great

It reminds me of NCIS LA which came out a few years later


They look a tad similar


Everytime I see a promo for NCIS LA I think of Eight Days which makes me want it

I have given up hope on Versus being released this generation.

Whenever I get the automated email from Amazon telling me that they are still trying to obtain the release date from the publisher, I feel the urge to reply them telling them to not even bother. It's a do-not-reply email address.

I was very excited for Versus for a few years ... now the excitement is completely gone. They need to start announcing titles accordingly with their release window because if i were still riding the hype train and it was releasing, i'd be screaming atop my lungs about it and telling all my friends.

Now I dont even give the game a second thought.
wastedcells  +   974d ago
Agreed. They are next gen games no doubt.
MostJadedGamer  +   974d ago
Usually not a good idea to try to convert old, long delayed titles to a next generation system. Its best to just go ahead, and release it on the Last Gen system even if the Next Gen system is already out.

Just because a Next Gen system is out does not mean they stop releasing games on the Last Gen systems. Heck the PS2 had a TON of games that came out WAY after the PS3 was released.

Lol game was announced like 7-8 years ago with very little footage... It's time to let go
Godmars290  +   975d ago
It was shown with target render CG, then had mid-production clips when it was announced as "canceled".

A cross-country road-trip chase? Looked damned promising.
NeXXXuS  +   974d ago
I still haven't given up hope for Versus XIII. Yoichi Wada is the one that keeps screwing things up. And as far as I know, the reason why Versus XIII was being put on hold and "cancelled" for so long was because of XIII, and now they're making a third installment to the damn thing...

8 days animations and other production stuff was used by ND to make Uncharted

Getaway 3
Eight days

Both are 50% done and were cancelled but than were put on hold. I believe it's time for a new getaway game. Reboot the series and launch getaway with ps4.

Eight days sounds so promising so I hope that they finished development and we see it on ps3 or ps4

The last guardian is in development, Sony actually sent some of its top level tech guys to Japan late last year yo help finish the game. I believe this will launch with ps4 day one

Agent is coming not sure if it will be a excuse ttle
Ff13 versus needs a new name we have had enough ff13 games, I believe this will still be a exclusive title, no inside info just my gut feeling is SE will release it as exclusive than after launch it could come to other consoles

I hope we get their 4 one day
2pacalypsenow  +   974d ago
yeah prob a ps4 title
BlindGuardian  +   974d ago
just wanted to point out that (unless there's some gaikai stuff involved) making any of these games next gen will imply starting again from scratch with pretty much everything except conceptual design

I think The Last Guardian will eventually come out for the PS3 but it won't be what was originally planned, probably scaled down, similar to what happened with I am Alive

Agent on the other hand was probably canned years ago, or at least placed on permanent hold

Versus is IMO the only one that might be next gen, probably will be renamed XV, that might explain why we haven't seen it in years after that 5 minute gameplay trailer, it probably went down like Heavenly Sword, whhose developement was started on high end PCs long before PS3 dev kits were sent

at some point it was determined that a GTA like open world RPG was not possible on the PS3 and was put on hold until the tech could allow it

None of the games will have to start from scratch.

First generation "Next-gen" games for most people is a higher poly count, better draw distance and 60fps at 1080p resolution. It's not as hard as you think.
Gamer1982  +   974d ago
Im telling you Versus is a PS4 launch title thats why its been delayed so long as they couldnt get what they wanted out of ps3.

ff versus coming to the ps4 at this point may make more sense then putting a high profile game "that im guessing alot of you guys want as well" then putting it on the ps3

when if im somewhat right will want to sell more ps4's that way
torchic  +   974d ago
Final Fantasy IX released after the PS2 released (in some territories)

Final Fantasy XII released after the PS3 released.

why can't they do the same with Versus XIII? I totally see it coming in Q1 2014 just before Europeans get their PS4s
Furesis  +   974d ago
it's not going to be a ps4 title at least i dont think so and wouldn't it be smarter to release it on the ps3 because more people own ps3's(more money)? this is what i would do if i were SE and why would SE care about selling more ps4's anyways it's sonys console not theirs
Twisted_H3art  +   975d ago
They are probably next gen at this point.
animegamingnerd  +   974d ago
probably not since sony did say they are supporting the PS3 until 2015 and they spend so much money on these games they will probably release on the PS3 which has a larger user base to make back their money
wishingW3L  +   975d ago
they are not running out of time, they ran out of time.
Prodigy-X  +   975d ago
Because they're coming to PS4 as well.

FF XIII VS is going to be remade into FF XV
specialguest  +   974d ago
Might as well call it FF XV. From what I've seen so far, the game has no relation/connection to FF XIII. Seems to be a different time and universe like almost all FF games.
NeXXXuS  +   974d ago
Pretty sure it's called Versus XIII just on the fact that it's exclusive and isn't taking the direction that XIII went when it went multiplat. I would hope that they rename it XV though so there's no confusion between the series.
-Gespenst-  +   974d ago
Wrong. It's the same mythos as XIII. Etro and Bhunivelze and all those things.

It was never meant to connect to XIII's story. (Although I kind of wish it did)
specialguest  +   973d ago
@ -Gespenst-
The only thing that these games have in common is the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythos which according to SE is a "vague crystal theme". I'm taking this info directly from Wiki.

The game still remains a completely different game set in different universe and reality.
Furesis  +   974d ago
i do hope so but just because you say it doesn't mean it will i mean you sound like you're giving official info when you're not and that's annoying
smashcrashbash  +   974d ago
Are they going to explode or something?
knifefight  +   974d ago
According to reporting media? Of course.
DigitalRaptor  +   974d ago
God of War II came out after PS3 did... just saying.

And AGENT? wow, some people still think that game is coming out this gen?

SilentNegotiator  +   974d ago
I was going to make the same point with GOW2.

Games like Eight Days aren't going to release, but games like Last Guardian have hope yet.
I really hope you're wrong about Eight Days never seeing the light of day. Even now i still think it looks really cool. Hope Sony kept their "not cancelled, on hold" word and are planning to finish and release it someday.
Legendary-Status  +   974d ago
had some new info. in the famitsu now it just got banned!! ughhh come on now been waiting since like forever for FF VS 13 atleast somebody come out and tell us what'S REALLY going on?

clintagious650  +   974d ago
Been waiting on FF Versus 13 & Agent & The Last Guardian for ages. Im not really worried bout The Last Guardian because the creator usually takes his time & makes master pieces out of them but Agent & FF Versus 13 been way too long. PS4 & Next Box will drop & still havent seen sh!t from these 2 titles.
Hydralysk  +   974d ago
You do realize that The Last Guardian's creator announced he's leaving the company and only finishing the game on contract right? The game's obviously in development hell.

SE at least has the excuse that it's been making and/or publishing tons of titles this gen (regardless of overall quality). Team Ico hasn't produced ANYTHING since SotC in 2005, that's nearly a decade.
#11.1 (Edited 974d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(2) | Report | Reply
DOMination-  +   974d ago
Team Ico don't even exist anymore. Sony shut them down, merged the few staff still there with SCE Japan and pretty much gave The Last Guardian to SSM to co-develop/finish. It needed to be done, they were wasting too much money on what is quite a niche game.

FFv13 we will be seeing in the next few months. Wada said so it must be true. I reckon it'll still be ps3.

Agent Im sure is cancelled. Honestly Rockstar North have better things to do.. And always will. GTA will always take priority so i don't see it ever happening unless they move it to another R* studio.
elda  +   974d ago
I personally think The Last Guardian & FFvsXIII will launch on the PS4.
BigStef71  +   974d ago
Please at least let Last Guardian come out for ps3. I wouldn't even mind it if it was like Twilight Princess and was a simultaneous release on both the ps3 and ps4. It would be nice for VS13 to still come out this gen but I still have my doubts. I wonder now if MGS:Ground Zeroes is even gonna be on current gen
Bordel_1900  +   974d ago
For me, the problem is that if TLG releases for the PS3 I'm not even interested anymore, I'll only pick it up if it's for the PS4, same goes for vs13. Last games I can see myself buying for PS3 is God of War Ascension, The Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls.
blue_flowers  +   974d ago
if FF13 Versus doesnt become a PS4 launch title its never coming out lol, same goes for the last guardian.
silkrevolver  +   974d ago
I can't think of a single RPG launch title in the history of ever. There was that shity Legends game on PSP, but that's hardly an RPG.
Xof  +   974d ago
Enchanted Arms?
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   974d ago
No. Just because a new system comes out doesn't mean these games won't be finished. Look at the PS2.
BigStef71  +   974d ago
I sure hope so
WooHooAlex  +   974d ago
Hopefully The Last Guardian will be a PS4 title, Agent and FFvsXIII on the other hand ... I don't really care anymore.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   974d ago
PS3 is getting support till 2015 they have enough time
Chard  +   974d ago
Didn't The Last Guardian have a tentative release date of Q4 2011? For Sony to announce that during 2011, surely it must have been somewhat close to completion. How could things go so wrong?!

FF vs. XIII will be FF XV, mark my words..
fourthpersonview  +   974d ago
FFV13 has already been cancelled.
ps3_pwns  +   974d ago
they will still release some of these games on the ps3 and some might be able to be played upgraded on the ps4 so who knows what can happen. All I know is ps2 still had god of war and other games release at the end of its life. WHich is much better then the lack of games wii and x360 has coming out right now.
Ngai  +   974d ago
They'll sure go out with a bang!
Kratoscar2008  +   974d ago
Even if Versus comes out i will no be good, its SE after all.

On a side note Persona 5 is running out of time too.
Irishguy95  +   974d ago
Nomura's games always get high marks actually
ps3_pwns  +   974d ago
Persona 5 isnt running out of time. persona 3 came out right before Warhawk for the ps3. I remeber this because i was like I need to finish persona 3 before warhawk comes out because warhawk was gonna be 32 player dedicated server online battles with huge maps, airplanes and vehicles and such. When i beat p3 i was happy and lucky because i was addicted to warhawk forever lol. when they released the trophy patch i only had to do a few trophies to get the platinum.

With that said persona 4 came out for ps2 even deeper into the ps3 life cycle. I got the edition with the art book of p4 as well.

It seems like persona series and stuff like last guardian always release like right before or shortly after the new console comes out.
Magnus  +   974d ago
I could careless about FFVS13 Im tired of being teased by a game that SquareEnix dabbles here and there. Working on two sequals to FF13 instead of actually releasing FFVS13. I want Last Guadrian its on my list of games to play. Ni No Kuni is making me forget all about FFVS13.
abzdine  +   974d ago
i can barely imagine how much sales this game is gonna make if it's ported as a PS4 launch title instead.
tigertron  +   974d ago
I gave up on Versus long ago. It seems Square-Enix are more interested in starting new projects and releasing them first, instead of pushing Versus out of the door.

It's taken them an entire gen to make Versus and still we have no release date.

isarai  +   974d ago
Just because a new console is released doesn't mean they are "out of time"
DigitalAnalog  +   974d ago
Even if the PS4 is released..
Let's not forget: Both GOWII & SoTC are released in 2007. A YEAR after the PS3 is released. I don't see why Versus XIII wouldn't come at 2014 with a very large PS3 install base.
parkerpeters  +   974d ago
You all act as if the PS3 will be dead the day PS4 is released. As the user above me said, GoW2, SotC, not to mention Persona 3 and 4 were all released on PS2 AFTER the PS3 came out.

It doesn't HAVE to be on PS4.
-Gespenst-  +   974d ago
I forgot about Ni-Oh! Damn I was really looking forward to it actually.
